For more than 40 years, the INS Annual Meeting and Exhibition has been the largest meeting for infusion nursing professionals in the United States, bringing together thousands of professional attendees each year.
INS will consist of 4 days full of educational opportunities – including case studies, track sessions, roundtable discussions, peer presentations, hands-on education, industry-sponsored symposia, and much more. And as a CRNI®, you'll receive the same number of recertification units, units that previously took almost a week to obtain!
INS’ two national conferences has many opportunities to get you directly in front of hundreds of infusion nurses. From exhibiting, event sponsorship, exhibitor theaters and more, you’ll connect directly with nurses and clinicians passionate about infusion therapy.
The Infusion Nurses Society (INS), located in Norwood, MA, is a national nonprofit organization representing infusion nurses and all other clinicians who practice infusion therapy.
Since 1973, INS has continued its commitment to bringing innovative new resources and learning opportunities to the wide range of healthcare professionals involved in the specialty practice of infusion therapy. We are dedicated to advancing the delivery of quality infusion therapy to patients, enhancing the specialty through stringent standards of practice and professional ethics, and promoting research and education in the infusion nursing practice.
The abduction of Elizabeth Smart was one of the most followed child abduction cases of our time. Elizabeth was abducted on June 5, 2002, and her captors controlled her by threatening to kill her and her family if she tried to escape. Fortunately, the police safely returned Elizabeth back to her family on March 12, 2003, after being held prisoner for 9 grueling months. Through this traumatic experience, Elizabeth has become an advocate for change related to child abduction, recovery programs, and national legislation. Elizabeth triumphantly testified before her captors and the world about the very private nightmare she suffered, which ultimately lead to 2 convictions.
The Founder of the “Elizabeth Smart Foundation,” Elizabeth has helped promote The National AMBER Alert, The Adam Walsh Child Protection & Safety Act, and other safety legislation to help prevent abductions. She has also chronicled her experiences in the New York Times best-selling book, “My Story.” Elizabeth’s abduction and recovery continues to motivate parents, law enforcement, and leaders worldwide to focus on children’s safety. She emphasizes vigilance by "every day" people and the belief that hope always exists to find every missing child.
